updating my painting progress. looking at these pictures on the computer gives me an entirely different view and I'm realizing some things that I really need to fix. I'm still concerned with overworking it, especially the water. but now that i've worked on the water a bit I realize that it's too light. I have to decide if the water or the what is going to be light - and I really think the whale should be since it's the focal point. I may have to work some stuff out in photoshop before I go any further. I'm also realizing that while I wanted a rich deep background, I may have lost some of the warmth. I may need to bring some of the yellow up - but keeping in mind that I still have to add the trees and boat. so, we will see. I want to try and get this completed this weekend. That may be a bit ambitious, but it's worth a try.
